Publish Automation to a Space instead of keeping private

as a Qlik admin of a large organization it is very difficult to manage many different automations.

  • We have a team of dedicated Qlik developers who have built amazing Qlik Automations. BUT! it stays in their on personal space.
  • It will make so much more sense if these automations can be published to spaces just like a Qlik app.
  • Currently its extremely frustrating that we can not move or publish an automations.
  • Very difficult to keep track of dev vs prod automations! 

How can an Admin manage Automations created by developers?

Agree, don't understand how it can be viewed as a production environment with every automation in personal spaces?

Hi there,

When it comes to controlling your environment it would be better to create automations in all spaces. So you can choose to create the automation the managed or shared space.
Priority has the managed space so you can set it up when developing.

Kind regards,

Sebb.

Hi @lwp89 

 

We are working on the design to add automations (and connections) to shared spaces where users have 'can edit' or 'can view' permissions to facilitate both collaboration and consumption use cases. 

Kind regards,

if I understand correctly an automation can be shared as a template?

I understand this is not the same  but it might be helpfull until the roadmap gets there 🙂

Hi

This is still high on our roadmap with design ongoing. 
We cannot share any timing.

This feature would also be required by our 1700 employee organization.  We as admins need an easy way to see automations created by other admins, excluding automations created by random employees.

Hi @lwp89 

 

Thanks for sharing. 

Adding automations to a shared space is one of our key priorities in the upcomming quarters. 


An admin can always move an automation to another user from the MC, and you can share the automation source code (workspace) through the shared template feature or a git backup (example templates were released yesterday).

Kind regards,

Hi there,

any news about this feature? In particular, we need to share on-demand execution of automations. As far as I know, currently only the owner of the automation is allowed to run the automation on-demand ( typically through a button on the app  ), which is a heavy limitation. 

 

Kind regards
